I love veggie burgers. I realize they may not be every vegetarian’s cup of tea, but I’m a huge fan. My favorites are cooked well enough that you can actually eat them like a sandwich, but sometimes a homemade veggie burger is just destined for a fork. Either way can be delicious, depending on your mood. The same is true for fake meat versus veggie and grain burgers. Depends on the day (and the toppings) to see which kind I’d call my absolute favorite.
As any vegetarian knows, not all veggie burgers are created equal. So while they may be on menus across Las Vegas you’ll never get the same sandwich twice. Some are vegan, some are vegetarian. Some taste suspiciously meaty, while others were clearly vegetables only moments ago. But whatever your preference, I’ve done the heavy lifting to bring you my guide to veggie burgers on the Las Vegas Strip.
Probably my favorite veggie burger, thanks to the endless customization options. This house-made patty tastes fresh but it does fall apart easily. You can add as many toppings as you want, so pile on extra veggies and split an order of fries.
It might be cheating to call this falafel sandwich a veggie burger, but it’s pretty close. And the rest of the menu is burgers, so companions will be happy. This patty is definitely soft and hard to keep between the buns, but delicious even on a fork.
Their Urth Burger is delicious, but even better than that, it’s vegan, too. Plus it’s topped with avocado, the best burger accompaniment I’ve ever had. There’s an array of meaty burgers on the menu as well, making this an ideal spot for a group that includes carnivores.
Finally, a firm patty! And a double-decker to boot. This two-story veggie burger was a first for me, and quite delicious. It seemed house-made but the flavor was reminiscent of store-bought burgers. Which, for me, was a good thing. Also, they’re open 24 hours, a big plus.
A simple Gardenburger, and yet possibly my favorite vegetarian burger in all of Las Vegas. I think it’s the shredded lettuce and pineapple, or possibly the delicious tropical drinks you feel compelled to order alongside your veggie burger.
Another firm patty that can be eaten with hands only! Canter’s serves up a well-portioned Gardenburger with fries. It’s your standard veggie burger from the well-known brand, but sometimes it’s nice to know what you’re in for. Plus, it’s available to go.
While the veggie burger here isn’t exactly groundbreaking, they do get points for having not only a veggie burger but also a veggie sandwich on the menu. The burger is well-flavored and can be eaten on the bun. Great for a quick lunch or casual dinner.
